Certain aspects even held onto velvet cold pow.

Other aspects had some “transitiony” (TM Icelantic skier) pow.

But in the end I think we picked a perfect time to bring our green plates to the party.

    Whooaa! It’s KC this time capturing the top pic on this post! Nice job everyone…skiing and photos.

    You definitely need to hook up with an advertising agent and sell to a company like Mountain Dew or Snickers (remember our brief discussion at Lake o’ Clouds?)Even to film you, Greg and crew, for a commercial advertisement. Then you can do this full time! ‘Course you’ll probably stop posting when your a professional photog(making the $’s)-Cause then you’ld be giving it away..

    If I think or can Find a connection for you…..

      Thanks! Yes indeed I remember our conversation at Lakes last year… and before that via email/T4T-PM regarding the Wild West TR.

      We are currently working with many potential sponsors, ad-buyers, and affiliates, but the climate is very rough for raising money for ski stoke. The primary producers of ski stoke (love them or hate them) have the market for advert dollars locked up pretty tight, and it’s hard to edge in. We keep trying though!

      Good thing we all love doing this stuff anyway… so I’m glad when folks enjoy it!

    I thought that Icelandic had a copyright on that joke.

    Greg, you got to tell me something. The ads that show up, are you the one that choose them? I’m scratching my head and I was somewhat disappointed not to see more skin in this TR based on the items below. ;)

    Beyond Coastal Natural Sun Care Kit SPF 30

    CARVE DESIGNS Women’s La Paz Bikini Top

    EXOFFICIO Women’s Give-N-Go Lacy Low-Rise Bikini

    Not sure where the whippet would fit in.
